Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator’s community and financially back them for making the stuff you love. By “your favorite creator” I obviously mean me! It’s like a J. Coursey Willis subscription. In addition to throwing money at me on stage (that can get very hazardous to my health), you are now able to join and subscribe to the J. Coursey Willis community on a monthly basis by choosing one of my Patreon reward levels. I am offering different options from as little as $1 to $500 for those extra special Patrons. I will continue doing what I do now, but with a growing Patreon team, I will be able to create more material more often. That means more albums, more singles, more music videos, and more TOURING!
So here is how it works. Lets say you choose the $5 per month subscription. Your credit card will be charged $5 per month for however long you wish to stick with me. There are no contracts or trickery. In turn, you will become an official Patron of J. Coursey Willis and I will send you all my love and gratitude … obviously. But, on top of that, you will receive full access to my Patreon-only feed for blog posts, picture & video updates, special MP3 downloads, and early access to all content I create.
Now let’s say you choose the $15 per month tier. You will receive everything previously mentioned as well as a 5% discount to the J. Coursey Willis online store for as long as you subscribe and you will be a direct part of the JCW production team to answer questions I might have regarding my creations. You see I’m rewarded with the higher the tier you choose, and in turn, you are rewarded more by me. I also have special offerings such as Skype interviews and Patreon-only blooper & outtake videos from the studio, music videos, and much much more.
Right now you might be saying to yourself, “Why doesn’t he just try to get signed by a label? I mean he is probably the most talented musician I’ve ever heard … literally ever.” – ok so maybe not that last part. Anyway, record labels are kind of history in the music industry. Many musicians are forced to find creative ways to financially support themselves and their art. Patreon is one of those ways. This new journey of mine is very exciting for me and hopefully for you too. I’m thrilled that you can now be a part of it. Just me and my Patreon team taking on the world. How cool is that?!
So, to sum things up, ME + YOU + Patreon = I get paid regularly and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. You in essence are my record label. It is so awesome to think that me, or any of your other favorite artists, can make a living doing what we do best, all because of you.
